LPKF Laser & Electronics AG

The LPKF Laser & Electronics AG, Erlangen Garbsen, Germany, is the world market leader in various segments of micro-material processing with lasers. The laser welding division in Fuerth is an innovative technology -ical leader for laser transmission welding. LPKF supplies stand-alone, as well as fully automated inline production systems based on laser transmission welding for the medical, automotive, electronics and consumer applications.

In the context of the project the company LPKF will focus on different objectives. On the one hand it is necessary to define and implement the mechanical and optical integration of the measurement module into the machine. On the other hand, the software and electronic integration between machine, laser, scanning and the measuring devices, as well as the control unit has to be accomplished. LPKF will also take part in the integration of the feedback control module into a laser transmission welding machine as well as in the testings on the machine, producing laser transmission welded parts with and without using the adaptive system. This will be necessary in order to verify the benefit of using the build-up feedback control module. LPKF will also coordinate the project consortium. After the project LPKF will lead the company group to commercialize the adaptive laser transmission welding machines with integrated measurement module and improved machine control.
